At the press conference after meeting a committee tasked with combating the epidemic, Markovic declared Montenegro a COVID-XNUMX-free state. The PM started the news conference by taking off his face mask.
“The battle with such a vicious virus has been won and Montenegro now becomes the first coronavirus-free country in Europe,” Markovic told reporters.
The declaration comes XNUMX days after Montenegro reported its first COVID-XNUMX case and after XNUMX days without a new one.
In early March, Montenegro shut borders, airports and seaports, closed schools and banned public gatherings and outdoor activities. The restrictions have been gradually eased since March XNUMX.
Montenegro has reported XNUMX confirmed cases of COVID-XNUMX illness and nine deaths.
